Brooklyn Nets superstar James Harden is literally a walking machine. In a 96-90 road dub against the Detroit Pistons, the Beard etched his name atop in the league’s record books.

After a long bomb in the middle of the 2nd quartet, he moved past Portland Trail Blazers icon Clyde Drexler in the NBA’s all-time scoring leaders, occupying the 32nd spot.

And as he finished the game with a statline of 13 markers, 10 rebounds and 10 dimes, he surpassed the legendary Larry Bird for No. 7 in triple-doubles.

As such, these are astounding accomplishments for a guy who has a phenomenal talent, but basketball’s greatest prize will always be the only ideal one this time beyond his eyes.

The Nets will continue its title exploits and are set to face the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
